In less than 1 year, BitTorrent released 6 products for the Android, iOS, and Windows Phone platforms. BitTorrent announced this week that more than 10 million people from all over the world installed the company’s mobile products.

There are, at the time of writing this, 6 mobile products offered to Android, IOS, and Windows Phone users by BitTorrent, the company that develops and maintains the BitTorrent protocol as well as the BitTorrent and the uTorrent software applications. All the mobile products are less than 1 year old, which makes the following announcement even more impressive: they were downloaded and installed by more than 10 million users.


The first BitTorrent-developed mobile product was Remote, an app that allowed users to remotely control their torrent client from their mobile devices. You could install Remote on your Android-powered device and use it while on the go to control torrent downloads on the desktop computer at home. Remote was, as mentioned above, released about a year go. Since then, the Remote app and all the other apps BitTorrent has to offer have been downloaded by more than 10 million Android, IOS, and Windows Phone users from all corners of the world.

The BitTorrent team broke down that number into the following chunks:
  • BitTorrent Remote was downloaded 4.7 million times.
  • BitTorrent for Android was downloaded 1.5 million times.
  • uTorrent for Android was downloaded 3.8 million times. That is an impressive achievement considering that the app was released about 3 months back.

“10 million and more thanks to all of you who’ve tried, tested, and shared our mobile goods. 75% of you said you’d recommend our µTorrent (uTorrent) Android app. (That makes us blush.) 25% of you said you’re using it every day, and 45% of you said you’re using it once or twice a week. (That’s kind of a lot.)” commented the BitTorrent team.
